    @marinewifetobe:  I just did a quick comparison on a 1 carat princess and a 1 carat cushion for reference on BlueNile.com

    The measurements for a 1 carat princess are approximately 5.40×5.40

    And for the cushion they are approximately 5.70×5.70

    So they are almost exact and you won’t be able to tell the difference with the naked eye

    They actually both appear small compared to diamonds of other shapes.. so I vote Same

    Cushions face up a little smaller than princess cuts generally, so maybe it a little larger if you get a cushion than you would a princess. 🙂

    I don’t think that there would be a great visual difference between the two. 

    Plus, with diamonds, it depends a lot on the cut.  You can have a well cut diamond face up slightly smaller than a poorly cut diamond of the same weight if the poor cut stone is shallower. 

    I’m not sure about moissanite since I don’t own one or haven’t researched them extensively, so I don’t know much about their cut.  It seems like some vendors sell them based on size (ie 6mm X 6mm, etc)?

    I would also take other factors into consideration like setting, for example.  Some settings may accomodate a princess better than a cushion and vice versa.

    Also, I have heard some girls on the bee say that round and cushion moissanite stones sparkle most, but again, I can’t attest to that either.  Sorry!

    You may want to see both and compare before making any decisions.  Could you order both and return the one you don’t want?

    @marinewifetobe:  A moissanite cushion cut stone will more resemble a diamond than a princess cut would, IF that matters to you!
